I have a really easy window project for you today. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest for my fireplace. This is sort of like a fireplace screen to use when you’re not building fires. In my case, my fireplace is no longer a working fireplace.

I first started on this sewing machine cabinet turned into a drink station over a year ago. But I wasn’t quite happy with it, so I stored it in the garage and recently decided to revisit it.

I love a great crib repurpose, and I don’t like having an outdoor eyesore like a gas meter. While doing my backyard makeover, everything was looking so nice that I just had to cover the gas meter. It’s nearly impossible to cover all of the things that hang on your house, but if you give your guests “pretty” options, they’re less likely to notice the other necessities of being a homeowner.
This fun and easy repurposed chandelier project is perfect for your porch or patio. Solar lights have changed a lot, and easily charge in shady areas. Hang this from a tree, shepherd’s hook or your porch. It will make you smile every night as it adds a special ambiance to your outdoor space.
Yay! Talk of the Town 175 is live! Really great stuff to inspire you. Most of the weeks it’s so difficult for me to choose just one diy project and one yummy recipe. With the long weekend coming up, maybe you have time to work on something soon.
